    I was wondering if anyone has any tips, tricks, or workouts I should be doing to lose weight quicker and work on my technique. I'm also looking for workouts I could use for strength & conditioning

    Focus on cardio until you get your weight down to where you can do calisthenics then report back here. There aren't any tricks just hard work. Eat less of course but not to the point of fasting.

    If running hurts or you can't do it for very long then just walk. You burn the same amount of calories as running.

    Best of luck in achieving your goal. Losing 100 pounds is tough, it won't happen overnight. But definitely possible.

    This is a tough one for anyone to answer. Because, as stated above - there's no tricks. No way about it other than work hard, and consistency. Running, swimming, sparring, plyometrics, HIIT training at a minimum of 4 days a week.
    Lots of factors to consider, your age, fitness level, target timeframe, current training, goals, your nutrition.

    Tbh - I think a lot of people aren't jumping at the chance to answer this one, because there's just too many ways to go, too much unknown and we're not sure where to start.

    For an aggressive 100 lb goal, you may want to consider getting help from certified dietitian and trainer. It's certainly possible to go it alone with help from the internet, but your best bet are professionals.

    Tip #1 - Get your nutrition right. Success is 80% (or some other high number) achieved here. Pick your method, be it low carb, Paleo, etc. but do a bit of research and see what you can SUSTAIN.

    Tip #2 - Gear your workouts towards higher paced, full body ones. Don't go heavy, just go heavy ENOUGH. Compound movements are terrific. Take a morning or lunchtime walk.

    Tip #3 - Track your nutrition. Use MyFitnessPal or another. Track EVERYTHING.

    Plenty of fast paced walks until you get to the point where you can run, jumping rope or jumping jacks if you don' have one. Shadow boxing and hitting the bags are good enough for strength training, Don't try to calorie count, instead just eat what you know is healthy, which you know is vegtables and fruit but no one can survive off that, you need healthy protein in your diet and you can get that from foods such as eggs (hard or soft boiled is the best)
    Whole grains, oatmeat, peanut butter toast on whole grain, cottage cheese, tuna salad or chicken salad (use light mayo) lean meats such as chicken and Turkey and fish are great, steak is healthy too if you don't butter fry it, drink plenty of water, and stay away from sugar and cheese, eat fruit instead, i have an addiction to sweet tea so I started using fake sugar to keep off the pounds, I went from 216 to 170lbs and it wasn't too easy either, but my advice is to do light cardio, change your diet to a low fat low sugar diet, and don' starve yourself, and dont eat before you go to bed unless it' fruit or vegtables. Best of luck to you.

    Yes wondermonkey is right. Eating well will get you results more so than the training when it comes to weight loss.
    Don't drink Gatorade and sugary drinks. Just stick to water.

    For me eating salad with meat/chicken makes me drop weight. Pasta, potatoes and bread makes me pack on weight really fast even when I'm exercising heaps.

    How come you suggest not to calorie count? I thought that to lose weight at a basic level you should consume less calories than you need for maintenance? I'm not clued up on this so any advice would be appreciated

    Looking back at my post now seems a little outdated and wouldn't agree with all if it, but as far as calorie counting goes seems a bit trivial to me, for a 275lbs person to consume 2,000 calories a day and work out ontop of that would be a little bit of stretch in my book, they should cut back on calorie intact obviously by eating healthy and drinking water as a primary drink alone would do the majority of the population that doesn't wonders, when your exercising you need to listen to what your body needs and not starve yourself or overeat either because either one could effect your metabolism

    Thanks for the response mate! As someone who is 95kg's and 5ft10", I would like to drop to 85kg or under. Would you recommend doing primarily cardio alongside a healthy diet? I want to do body weight exercises but at my current weight it is difficult for me. The goal essentially is to drop weight and increase endurance+stamina to last a fight whilst not overloading on weights that'll slow down my boxing

    Running and sparring are the most important for a boxing match, i honestly dont do either anymore but I've found that doing everyday strength training really activates your metabolism, i read a article about how one appendage exercises at a time really increase your strength and stability alot more because it makes it a more natural movement so I try to do one arm push ups, one arm pull ups and one leg squats everyday, even one leg jumping Jack's since I gave my jump rope away.
